Taco María's luxe lonchera is sold off, and the long-awaited restaurant at the OC Mart Mix is built out with a gorgeous dark-hardwood bar counter. Permits are long-completed; inspections are over.
Now, there are just two more weeks until we can eat Carlos Salgado's crispy pork-belly carnitas with salsa borracha again.
What's the delay? For starters, they're staffing up. They're also working on perfecting their menu in a brand-new kitchen with all-new equipment. What's on the menu?
Now that the farmer's market comes to their parking lot every Saturday morning, the menu is even more focused on seasonal produce than before. We. Can't. Wait!
Taco María. 3313 Hyland Avenue #1, Costa Mesa. Next door the Cheese Shop.
